What Is Google SEO?

The term SEO means search engine optimization, but what is that? For one, it is misunderstood. With all of the social media platforms out there, many people tend to believe that social media equals SEO. This could not be further from the truth.

Before I move one, let me clarify that I am not saying that a presence on social media is not important for your business. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Every business should have a social media presence. With that said, it is not a single ranking factor. In fact, there is no single ranking factor.

Search engine optimization is a number of strategies that when combined, help to move your website up the search engine ranks.

Google SEO FAQ

  • How long will it take to rank on the 1st page?

This cannot be answered and should not be answered, even by an expert agency. Every industry is different, and because of this and a number of other factors, there is simply no way to guarantee a time frame. It could take 3 months, 6 months, and sometimes a year or more.

  • How much does it cost?

Our goal at Melissa Ritter Marketing is to work with potential clients and come up with a campaign that fits in their marketing budget. We do not have a set price that all of our clients have to pay. It depends on how aggressive you want to be, and how quickly you want to see results. If you prefer to spend more per month, you will see results sooner than if you have a smaller budget, in which case you will see results, it may just take longer to produce them.

  • Do I have to sign a contract?

Absolutely not! We do not require a contract because our work is based on trust and results. If for any reason you do not feel that we are performing, simply cancel services.

  • Can you give me names of your clients for references?

We do not provide our clients names to anyone, and we will offer the same courtesy to you. Business owners do not have time to answer phone calls from people looking to hire their SEO specialist. We believe that our rankings show that we know what we are doing, and we will do the same for your business.

While there are hundreds more, these are the top questions that we get asked on a daily basis, and we completely understand why an answer is necessary.

So, What is Google SEO

Google SEO is the process of strategically placing a website on page one in Google’s organic search results for their business related keywords and locality if applicable. When this happens, any time a user searches Google for your product or service, your website is placed in front of them, giving them an opportunity to find out more about you.

This is the most effective way to advertise your business online. The leads are hot. They are literally looking for what you can provide and there is no better form of marketing.

If your website is not sitting on page 1 of Google, you are losing customers every day to your competitors. Don’t let something that you don’t understand or know how to apply affect your business.
